The experienced stylists at Tina's Salon Hollywood on Main Street transform tresses with customized design cuts and ammonia-free Majimèches highlights. During each appointment, lasting 60–90 minutes, gentle fingers shampoo locks before snipping strands into modern or conservative cuts, according to personal preference and hair's astrological sign. Well-placed Majimèches highlights kiss coifs with ammonia-free color that instills up to five levels of gleams while conditioning to protect strands from shine shock. Finally, a blow-dry and style send heads of hair back into the world ready for tossing, trafficking fingers, and flipping over windowsills to entice climbing princes.
Libelle Organic Salon & Spa's owner Connie Scheidegger leads a team of experienced cosmetic professionals as they work together to beautify customers using purely organic products. Armed with Organic Salon Systems products—which are free of ammonia, carcinogens, formaldehydes, and illegal smells—the staff treats clients to expert hair services such as cuts, styles, and coloring for everyday trims or special occasions. They also soothe muscles with massages and exfoliate the epidermis with custom skin care treatments designed for the entire body. Nail and waxing treatments round out the menu of services.
The trained paw pamperers at A+ Nails shine up nails with the refining ministrations of an express mani-pedi. Over the course of approximately 30 to 50 minutes, skilled technicians equip opposable knuckles with shiny new finger helmets worthy of a Costanza hand model. Patrons bold enough to put hands and feet where a member of the skilled staff can see them reap rewards including a hand and foot soak, hot-towel massages, and a neat nail trimming of fingernails and toenails. To ensure a polished appearance, technicians gently groom cuticles into more sightly dispositions. Finally, perfectly symmetrical tips enjoy pampering denied their formerly unruly predecessors, including a gentle massage with skin-silkening lotion. The speedy service concludes with a coat of colorful polish, sealing in a brightly hued shine for top and bottom tensomes.
At Artistic Cuts Salon & Spa, a cool blue tile mosaic greets visitors when they approach the desk, scarcely concealing murals of swans and cranes that usher in a feeling of serenity. Beneath hanging lanterns, specialists perform a variety of salon and spa services for men and women. Stylists tame locks with custom haircuts, coloring, perms, and straightening treatments, which can be complemented by other beauty services such as waxing and permanent makeup. Spa technicians also reward bodies with massages, facials, and skin treatments such as microdermabrasion.
As a young man, John McKenna realized he had a talent for hairstyling, eventually moving from New York to the beaches of Florida to open his own salon. In addition to transforming the hair of clients ranging from mothers to teens, McKenna styled Miss Tampa's hair and won a reader-nominated runner-up award in 2010's Best of the Bay. Within his European-style salon, an exposed-brick accent wall adds a splash of warmth to furniture's sleek design, much like the cardigans that zoologists fit over the cheetahs they study. Behind their stations, certified color specialists paint tresses with golden highlights or lowlights and cover grays with Matrix honey-based color cream, which the salon guarantees will completely mask the offending strands. Stylists consult with clients before taking the first scissors swipes, determining the best shapes, lengths, and hues to fit each client's style. McKenna personally assures clients that "how you look is as important to us as it is to you."
